Psalms 41

God's care for the poor.

Psalms 41:1 {To the chiefe musition, a psalme of Dauid.} Blessed is he that considereth ye poore: God wyll delyuer hym in the tyme of trouble. Psalms 41:2 God wyll preserue hym & kepe him aliue: he shalbe blessed vpon the earth, and [thou O God] wylt not deliuer him into the wyll of his enemies. Psalms 41:3 God wyll comfort hym when he lyeth sicke vpon his bed: thou [O God] wylt turne vpside downe all his bed in his sicknesse.

David complaineth of his enemies' treachery.

Psalms 41:4 I sayde, O God be mercifull vnto me: heale my soule, for I haue sinned agaynst thee. Psalms 41:5 Myne enemies speake euyl of me: when shall he dye, and his name perishe? Psalms 41:6 But yf [any of them] came to visite me, he spake vanitie: his heart conceaued vngodlynesse within hym selfe, & when he came foorth a doores he vttered it. Psalms 41:7 All they that hated me whispered together: they imagined euyl agaynst me. Psalms 41:8 [They sayde] some great mischiefe is lyghted vpon hym: and he that lyeth sicke on his bed, shall ryse vp no more. Psalms 41:9 Yea besides this, euen myne owne friende whom I trusted: which dyd also eate of my bread, hath kicked very much agaynst me.

He fleeth to God for succour.

Psalms 41:10 But be thou mercifull vnto me O God: rayse me vp agayne, and I shall rewarde them. Psalms 41:11 By this I knowe thou fauouredst me: in that myne enemie doth not triumph agaynst me. Psalms 41:12 And when I am in my best case, thou vpholdest me: and thou wylt set me before thy face for euer. Psalms 41:13 Blessed be God the Lorde of Israel: worlde without ende, Amen, Amen.
